Summer season has truly begun.

And let the madness begin! We’ve got quite the summer coming up, and what way to kick it off than a week full of events? Come catch some of the ladies from Lux Arati at two fun (and free!) upcoming gigs:

    • Wednesday, June 4th: Summer Solar Festival from 7-10:30pm @ the Rotunda 4014 Walnut Street, West Philly, PA 19104 www.therotunda.org! This ongoing seasonal event series features a variety of dance/movement/theater mediums, live electronic/acoustic music, vocalists & poetry/spoken-word presentations, circus/fire/flow arts performances, community art creations, live painting & VJ projections… Plus an Open Mic/Stage & Jam Sessions!
    • First Friday Grand Opening at Engagement Studios– Please join us for a First Friday event introducing Philadelphia’s newest and most exciting creative startup, featuring live entertainment, drinks, some of Philadelphia’s most popular food trucks and Philadelphia’s own DJ Adub. Planned together with our neighbor, the Painted Bride Art Center, the event will also debut the all-new InLiquid@ENGMT, an art gallery powered by InLiquid, Philadelphia’s premier community of artists. The first installation at Engagement Studios will be previewing the ever-popular InLiquid event, Art for the Cash Poor. More about us at http://www.engmt.com.

Meanwhile we’re hard at work for the piece we’ll be debuting at PEX Summer Fest as part of the Russian Roulette Variety Show. Can’t wait to share it with everyone!

Fall/Winter Highlights

Snowing you say? Won’t stop the ladies of Lux Arati! Here’s a short recap of some of the fun we had Fall/Winter 2013/14. Video and Photography contributors credited and hyperlinked below. Please check them out! Hire them if you’re looking for good people! We ❤ everyone who helps us gather evidence that this crazy group of ladies exist.

Most Hardcore Show of the Year

Brrrr!!! Krampuslauf Philadelphia this year was smack in the middle of an icy freezing cold snowstorm, but WE PERFORMED ANYWAY, as our official “Most Hardcore” performance of the year. Lux Arati has had our fair share of unfortunate weather during many of our performances — but nothing was quite as intense as this one. Special thanks to Terry Fields for joining us on stage, Amber and Janet for having us and the entire crowd of Krampuslauf Philadelphians that stuck around to watch us do our thing. We love you! Happy Holidays and Burn Bright!

Some great coverage from PHL17 here (taken by Ryan Wismer) and fun photos of the event up on Flickr here. A few borrowed photos from the Krampuslauf Facebook page below.

Here’s another video from the event, from Believe It Tour.

 

Krampus is coming!!!!

Oh man, are we excited for Krampuslauf! The weather is set to be wintery, but should calm down the time the show goes on.

Rally for the Rail Park at Union Transfer

I’m a little late in posting this, but we were waiting on our fire permit and it just came through this morning…. We’re super psyched to be part of another event for the Rail Park, this time at Union Transfer! Grid Philly has a nice write-up about the event here, and you can buy tickets to the event on the Rail Park’s page here.

We’ll be doing some inside dancing for the cocktail party, then spinning fire outside. Fingers crossed that the beautiful weather from today keeps up!
